The Kicks: Fuggit
Why We Love Them: You guys, crochet sneakers are a thing, and they’re cool as heck. Fuggit is a brand that takes sneakers and turns them into slippers for a great cause. The designer behind the brand, Rich Riley, creates one-of-a-kind handmade sneaker-slippers that are based on some of the most sought-after sneakers in the market right now. Think everything from Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runners to Sean Wotherspoon’s rainbow Nikes.
The Instagram account has become a hotspot for sneakerheads looking for something that’s unique and comfortable. Fuggit’s shoes really give a whole new meaning to the word “comfy,” because each of the shoes is lined inside with a layer of sherpa — talk about cozy. Another amazing thing? The brand is also a nonprofit, and every purchase is considered a donation and will help families directly affected by sneaker violence, which the brand describes as “material violence due to people who have been killed for their sneakers.” Rich told POPSUGAR, “Fuggit creates parody art footwear to spark the conversation of sneaker violence within the fashion community.”
Whether you’re in the market for a pair of classic Vans Sk8-Hi sneakers or a covetable designer collab like Supreme x Louis Vuitton, there’s something for everyone. The designer has even expanded into a line of mini shoes for kids called SnkrBaby. Keep reading to see some of the brand’s amazing creations.
